Good afternoon, everyone.
The West Coast Cycling Association and Bicycle Newfoundland and Labrador are pleased to announce the Provincial Championship Road Race for 2018. The Tour du Port Au Port (Road Race portion) on August 19th will crown our 2018 Provincial A / B Male and Female road racing champions.
The Tour du Port au Port has been a staple of the West Coast racing scene for many years, and an important part of the provincial racing circuit. Bicycle Newfoundland and Labrador is proud to partner with organizers for this exciting championship race, sending our best riders along a challenging and scenic course. The Port au Port Peninsula is connected to the mainland by a thin stretch of road in the St. George’s Bay area of the province. The area has deep roots in the Mi’kmaq and Franco-Newfoundland cultures. Incredible climbs and thrilling descents await those who challenge themselves to this epic 115K race around the Peninsula.
In addition to the championship road race, a time trial event will be held on Saturday (August 18th). Cycle Solutions will crown Tour du Port Au Port winners separately, based on General Classification (overall) points from the Time Trial and the Provincial Championship Road Race.
Head out to the Port au Port Peninsula on August 18th and 19th and compete to become this year’s Provincial Champion! We also invite residents to come out and join us as spectators and volunteers in order to recognize the incredible achievements of some of Newfoundland and Labrador’s best cyclists.
